An estimated 105,000 gallons of crude oil spilled on California's coastline near Santa Barbara last week. The broken pipeline created a slick stretching nine miles along some of California's most popular camping destinations before it was secured.
The company responsible, Houston-based Plains All American Pipeline, released a statement saying, “We apologize for the damage that it’s done to the wildlife and the environment, and we’re very sorry for the disruption and inconvenience it has caused.”
Our remaining natural coastline is too precious to risk to the "inconvenience" of oil spills—and we know no amount of safety regulations can prevent a disaster. We have the ability to get 100% of our energy from clean, renewable sources. The sad fact is: when you drill, you spill.
